CHARITY CONCERT BY THANASSIS POLYKANDRIOTIS
AND THE MUSICAL ENSEMBLE OI EPOMENOI
WITH THE PARTICIPATION OF GLYKERIA
DIMITRIS TYPALDOS’ CHILDREN’S CHOIR
2 NOVEMBER 2006
The Society of friends of the “Agii Anargyri” General Oncology Hospital aiming to crete a hostel for the impoverished cancer patients of the “Agii Anargyri” Hospital , is holding a concert in Athens Music Hall, in the Hall of Friends of Music onThursday 2 November 2006 at 20:30, presenting Thanassis Polykandriotis, Glykeria, Dimitris Typaldos’ Children’s Choir and the musical ensemble of 40 bouzoukia, “Oi Epomenoi” .
The composer and “bouzoukistas” Thanassis Polykandriotis was one of the first to ever bring the bouzouki in the Music Hall. In 1993 he was the soloist bouzouki player next to a symphonic orchestra. In 2006 the Greek composer who managed to “marry” folk and classical sounds, comes not with one, but with 40 bouzoukia for one single concert in Athens Music Hall (Hall of friends of Music). The show bears the title “Stou fegariou tin agalia”.
A title given appropriately, since Glykeria, by whose voice we loved the song of the same name, written by Thanassis Polykandriotis, takes part in the concert. On Music Hall’s stage, besides the young bouzouki players that are members of Thanassis Polykandriotis’ Artistic Musical Society OI EPOMENOI, who took part in the ATHENS 2008 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, will also be Dimitris Typaldos’ Children’s Choir.
A charity concert, including modern compositions by Thanassis Polykandriotis, but also references to Theodorakis, Xarchakos, Kaldaras, Kougioumtzis, Mitsakis, Tsitsanis, Zambetas and Mikroutsikos. There will also be a very special moment with soloist Manolis Karpathios and his kanonaki.
40 young bouzouki players, 30 children’s voices and a lot of effort by all to achieve the Society of friends of the “Agii Anargyri” General Oncology Hospital’s aim to morally and materially support the tumor patients of the Hospital and to build a hostel next to the hospital to accept impoverished cancer patients and their care givers.
